They also have an electric car charging point that guests can use. In order to reduce energy usage, there are PIR outside lights around the site with sensors, meaning they only turn on when they are needed.

"Beautiful area with plenty to do."
We stayed in Pinder cabin and had a lovely stay, the cabin was spacious and comfortable, nice and warm after cold days out. The children loved meeting the animals and the little play area outside the cabin. We really appreciated the toys in the living area which kept them busy! Kitchen was very well equipped. Good homemade bread and gorgeous cookies on arrival.

We stayed at the Swallow Pod over Easter Weekend and can not wait to return! The location of the pod is fantastic for exploring and walks in the countryside.

"The perfect home for a week"
We've just returned from our second visit to Hoe Grange. The suggested riding routes with stunning scenery were enjoyed by my daughter and I while the menfolk were delighted with the local fishing. Our dogs had fun exploring the countryside and near-by towns.
